CENACLE PRAYER GROUP
Our Cenacle meets once a month in different members' homes. We follow Fr. Stefano Gobbi's book, "The Marian Movement of Priests" and together we pray for priests, seminarians, religious and laity. The Blessed Mother asked that Cenacles of Light be spread throughout the world, and we are responding to her call for prayer. All are welcome to join us.
Second Sunday of each month
OPEN DOOR PRAYER GROUP
This prayer group, for both men and women, gathers weekly to offer up prayers for our parish family. No prayer is too small or too insignificant for us to pray. We have been together for over forty years, and consider it a privilege to pray for you and your family. Prayer is powerful and we know our Lord hears and answers our prayers in His time. All are welcome to join us.
Thursdays, 6:45 PM - 7:45 PM (after Adoration), Parish Hall
WOMEN'S PRAYER GROUP
We are an intercessory prayer group that strives for spiritual holiness. We love to sing and praise the Lord for His love and faithfulness. We also provide prayer through our church prayer chain.

We offer two group times:
